MLB releases its 2016 schedule


Major League Baseball just announced its master 2016 regular season schedule. Amazingly, they didn’t need a bloated prime time TV show to do it, either. Imagine!

The season will begin with ESPN’s now-traditional “Sunday Night Baseball” Opener on April 3 — teams to be determined. Thirteen games are set for Opening Day on Monday, April 4, some more openers on Tuesday April 5 and a full slate of 15 games is scheduled for Wednesday, April 6.

The last day of the 2016 regular season is scheduled for Sunday, October 2.  Other important dates next season include Jackie Robinson Day on Friday, April 15; the first day of the 2016 MLB Draft on Thursday, June 9, and the All-Star game in San Diego on Tuesday, July 12

You can see your team’s individual schedule at now. Here’s the Braves’ (go Barves!), and from there you can toggle between and among all 30 teams.
